Remember when you said you wanted to move to Canada?

The Canadian Parliament has announced plans to add more than one million new permanent residents in the next three years.

"Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy", Ahmed Hussen, minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, wrote in an annual report to Parliament.

About 13.7 percent of the U.S. population, roughly 1 in 7, in 2017 was foreign born, according to U.S. Census estimates.

Hussen further explained the new additions will neutralise the aging population and dwindling birth rate and at the same time offer boost its labour force.

The latest announcement by Canada follows the restrictive immigration policies adopted by certain western countries including United States. "Canada receives a lot of refugees every year".

This comes as there has been an unprecedented rise in the levels of refugees during the recent the recent years with the UNHCR figures showing around 68.5 million people have been forcibly displaced.

IRCC has pledged $5.6 million to support global resettlement initiatives. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
